I am very excited by the opening of the TUNNOCKED exhibition tomorrow night at The Glasgow Print Studio. It promises to be a bit of a silly night with people dressing up for the occasion and free teacakes for all. My painting has appeared in a photo in the Scotsman newspaper today, so here is the full painting showing that naughty use of our national treasures - the Tunnock's teacake! The painting is 36 x 36cm on box canvas and is painted in oil.

A small photo of the work in-situe is in today's online scotsman which you can read here:-

Glasgow Art Fair 2010 - Gatehouse Gallery

I am just enjoying a mad marketing day after finishing and framing a set of new oil paintings of burlesque performers for show at The Glasgow Art Fair 2010. I will be represented by the fabulous Gatehouse Gallery on stand 23 and will be exhibiting one of my large 100cm paintings.
The show opens to the public on Thursday 25th at 10.30 and runs through to Sunday until 6.30pm. If you are very lucky, you may be able to obtain an evening pass for the Wednesday or Thursday from one of the galleries.

New Work - Wings of Desire

I am just varnishing this new painting for hanging at the Glasgow Art Fair next week. It was inspired by the beautiful Miss Tickle from New York when she toured with The Slipper Room troupe to Glasgow, last summer. Her performance was one of the most elegant and graceful burlesque dances I have ever seen and I hope I have captured this.
